Prep Football: Week 5 Picks

The week of September 24

Brewer's Picks
Last Week:


Brewer vs. Keefer

Las Vegas Sun reporters Ray Brewer and
Case Keefer attempt to pick
the winning team from prep contests
across the Las Vegas area.

Keefer's Picks
Last Week:


Legacy knocks Arbor View from the ranks of the unbeaten.
Legacy 20, Arbor View 16

This could be a great game, but the Aggies are so young that it's hard to pick them in a contest this meaningful.
Legacy 21, Arbor View 20

Liberty is the team to beat in the Southeast.
Liberty 34, Del Sol 15

If the Patriots take the Dragons lightly, they will regret it. Del Sol is still dangerous.
Liberty 24, Del Sol 20

I might not pick Basic again this season.
Silverado 24, Basic 18

This could go either way, but I have to go with what I've seen. Basic impressed me more than Silverado.
Basic 28, Silverado 21

Palo Verde continues to be the class of the Northwest.
Palo Verde 39, Cimarron 12

The gap between Palo Verde and the second-best team in the Northwest, which might be Cimarron, is wide.
Palo Verde 30, Cimarron 7

Coronado moves to 2-0 in the Southeast. No, this is not a misprint.
Coronado 23, Green Valley 13

Gators show how parity-driven Southeast is by taking down the Cougars a week after their huge upset.
Green Valley 31, Coronado 21

Wins will be hard to come by for my Cowboys.
Rancho 38, Chaparral 20

William Gosse-Gardet is a double threat at quarterback for the Rams.
Rancho 42, Chaparral 16

Foothill has the easiest schedule in Nevada.
Foothill 50, Boulder City 0

Through four games, Foothill's opponents combined record is 1-12. Come on.
Foothill 35, Boulder City 6

Canyon Springs could score 100 if they wanted.
Canyon Springs 65, Sunrise Mountain 0

The Pioneers and the Miners? Similar mascots. Similar logos. Similar colors. I'm on to something.
Canyon Springs 56, Sunrise Mountain 2

Tough sledding all season for Valley. That's a shame.
Las Vegas 48, Valley 0

Still can't believe Las Vegas lost 51-7 in Utah.
Las Vegas 56, Valley 14

I'm still on the Faith bandwagon — at least for one more week.
Faith Lutheran 23, Cheyenne 21

Not sure Cheyenne has the defensive backs to slow Portaro and his cronies.
Faith Lutheran 35, Cheyenne 20

What a great turnaround. El-dog wins again.
Eldorado 32, Desert Pines 16

Ready to declare Eldorado one of the best stories of Las Vegas high school football this year.
Eldorado 26, Desert Pines 13

Clark should have beat Durango last week.
Clark 30, Sierra Vista 0

Feel bad for Sierra Vista, but its victory against Pahrump Valley will be its only of the season.
Clark 30, Sierra Vista 7

Pahrump shouldn't have to play in the 4A.
Durango 50, Pahrump Valley 0

Pahrump Valley is awful.
Durango 63, Pahrump Valley 0

Bonanza has some serious problems on defense.
Western 39, Bonanza 37

Shucks, I owe Brewer lunch after I took the under 120 points in Bonanza's last game.
Bonanza 86, Western 68

Desert Oasis isn't your typical third-year program.
Desert Oasis 34, Spring Valley 20

Spring Valley is better than a lot of people, apparently including Brewer, think.
Spring Valley 24, Desert Oasis 14

Virgin Valley ruins Mojave's homecoming.
Virgin Valley 30, Mojave 19

Homecoming? Not only will Bulldogs win this game, they will also steal Rattlers' dates to the dance.
Virgin Valley 36, Mojave 7

Dawgs regroup, still alive in Northwest race.
Centennial 33, Shadow Ridge 14

Neither of these teams are making the playoffs.
Centennial 14, Shadow Ridge 13

Gorman keeps it close before De La Salle flexes its muscles.
De La Salle 39, Bishop Gorman 21

Will Gaels lose again after this one? Doubtful.
De La Salle 42, Bishop Gorman 24
